Rich Seubert (Football): A four-year letterwinner from 1997-2000 for Leatherneck Football, Seubert earned All-America honors his senior year. During his time at Western, Seubert played tight end, guard and tackle.
In two of his four years, he helped pave the way for the Gateway Conference 'Offensive Player of the Year' - Aaron Stecker in 1997 and Charles Tharp in 2000. Three of the top four season rushing performances occurred during Seubert's time on the offensive line, including a record 2,293 yards by Stecker in 1997.
Western qualified for the Division I playoffs in three of his four years, advancing to the second round in 1997, semifinals in 1998 and first round in 2000. The '98 team's semifinals appearance still stands as the best postseason performance in program history. During his four-year career, Western posted a 38-12 record (.760 winning percentage) and won three conference titles.
He was a two-time winner of the Wes Stevens MVP Offensive Lineman award for the Leathernecks. Seubert was a three-time All-Gateway Conference selection, including First Team honors his senior year.
Following his collegiate career, Seubert joined the New York Giants and would become one of the most respected players on the squad. He played in two games during the 2001 season, but moved into a starting role in 2002 and did so in every game that year. Injuries limited him to only 10 games played during the next three seasons. During his final five years with the Giants, Seubert missed only two regular season games. The highlight of his professional career came when the Giants knocked off the undefeated New England Patriots to win Super Bowl XLII.
Seubert was the 2002 Ed Block Courage Award winner, 2007 Offensive MVP, won the 2008 Team MVP award and in 2009 received the Wellington T. Marra Award. The Giants named him the team's 2010 'Man of the Year'.
In recent years, he has established the Rich Seubert Celebrity Trapshoot to help The Celine Seubert Cardiac Research Fund. He is also involved with the Ronald McDonald House of New York and various schools in the New Jersey area. Seubert also holds his annual youth football camp at Marshfield Columbus High School.
He and his wife Jodi have three children: Hunter, Hailey and Isaac. They reside in Wayne, New Jersey.
